Evelyn Byrd Hall
The construction of Evelyn Byrd Hall, a women's dormitory, was featured in "The Romance and Renaissance of the College of William and Mary in Virginia" (1924). It was said that at the beginning of the session of 1923-1924 over 200 women were turned away from the College of William and Mary because of the lack of dormitory room. The amount needed for construction was listed as $192,000.
